The Remote Access VPN (Virtual Private Network) service allows CalNet ID–authenticated users to securely access the UC Berkeley network from outside of campus, as if they were on campus, and encrypts the information sent to the network. The VPN service allows authorized users a way to connect into the campus network in order to access resources generally unavailable to users not on the campus network.
